Currently struggling with this with my youngest. She is addicted to the ipad and I have to be onto her all the time, which is exhausting for me and annoying for both of us. I can't block the wifi because the others need it for school/uni work. I will investigate one of the apps to restrict the time it is used, which will impact us parents as well when we want to use it so we will have to be organised!

Regarding the use of tech in the bedroom, it is hard to enforce when children have their schoolwork on laptops. There are 6 of us in the house and the bedrooms are the best place for study and homework time in order to concentrate. A few years ago, they would all sit around the table and work but with HSC, uni etc they need a quieter place then there.

We do have a quiet hour in the afternoons, when there is no television or music playing and everyone can do some work, read, whatever as long as it is quiet. It is a very peaceful time and we all feel calm afterwards. Hard to be consistent with after school work and extra curriculars but we do our best to prioritise it.
